Busloads of bailiffs and dozens of riot squad officers descended on Buckingham Palace in central London this evening, as a group of 'Occupy' protesters set up camp outside Buckingham Palace gates.
This hot on the heels of the St Paul's Occupy clean up, where protesters were eventually cleared following a lengthy and controversial stand-off with authorities.
The first tents were erected at around seven pm this evening, and within a short space of time, the protester numbers were up to around the 100 mark, and a camp fire was burning in an old oildrum as protesters sang 'We Shall Overcome' in a pitiful falsetto.
Inspector Pip Schofield revealed that the authorities could do little about the protest until such time as they could be given a warrant in order to execute an eviction notice.
"We're snookered really," Inspector Schofield declared with an air of resignation. "This is a meticulously well organised protest, and quite frankly, even though Prince Phil's complained about the bloody awful singin', there's nowt we can do about it."
Undercover Skoob News reporter, Kevin Serpico, infiltrated the camp, and issued the following statement after speaking with the Occupy protesters:
"This protest appears not to be connected to the Occupy protests aimed at financiers and global corporations. The occupiers are a group of disgruntled readers of internet web dot comedy site theSpoof.com - and they're furious that as at the time of going to press, there has been no sign of the return of the Spiffing Six, in the popular mystery series in the site's Magazine section: The Mystery Of Puddleby Cove - Featuring The Spiffing Six.
"The protestors are refusing to budge until such time as lazy arsed story creator, Skoob1999 gets up off his lazy, idle, arse and types out Episode Five or Episode Three Part Two, whatever he decides to call it. But however it pans out, the protesters appear to be in for the long haul and have vowed to caterwaul until such time as Skoob releases the apathetically awaited episode."
In a brief statement, Skoob advised people not to hold their breath as it could cause accidental suffocation, and promised to release the next instalment of The Mystery Of Puddleby Cove - Featuring The Spiffing Six, when he can eventually be arsed.
Adding that the caterwauling outside Buck House bothered him not a jot, as he'd never really liked Prince Philip - or any other Royal for that matter - anyway.
More as we get it.
